This week on Global Notes we bring you the sounds of Cuban pianist Roberto Fonseca.
Fonseca is rooted in the Afro Cuban tradition that so many people first identified with the Buena Vista Social Club. But he’s also taking the form in new and unexpected directions.
We get a live taste as Fonseca and his rhythm section plays tunes in our Jim and Kay Mabie Performance Studio.
